Great teams to work with

Splunk has a great culture, nice work life balance, and great collaboration between the teams. However, always changing procedures and sometimes no one really knows what to do internally.

I've met some of the best people I've ever worked with

I have to say the people are what make Splunk amazing. Sure, it's a great product that has a large footprint globally - and it continues to grow & succeed. But the PEOPLE that are hired are by far the best I've ever worked with. Typically sales can be high strung, demanding and overall not pleasant 100% of the time. I've worked in support at Splunk for several years and I've never once had a negative interaction with a person in sales. And I covered globally over the years.....


Good perks, free meals and stocked breakroom. Supports remote employment

Vote Union Yes

Management treats the workers very poorly especially through this last year. It is come to our attention that we could unionize and use our right of collective bargaining to improve conditions!

Hyper growth, well paid

Splunk continues to operate in hyper growth mode with lots of opportunity and upside from a career and stock perspective. However, the pace of change is insanely fast and leadership is getting worse and worse at managing changes across an increasingly growing employee base (ie major reorgs every quarter, teams being created and merged and completely disbanded, new companies being acquired left and right, etc)


Pay, leadership, product


Work life balance, no change management

Great company

One of the best companies I’ve worked for. They treat their employees like gold and you are paid well if you exceed your goals. They have a great work life balance and the best people I’ve ever had the pleasure of working with.

Great products and vision but going through growing pains

Splunk has been a great company for years and it is growing rapidly. With that come growing pains, new leadership that does not fit the culture, unclear direction and silos. It is not easy to advance or find another career opportunities within. The products and CEOs long-term vision, however, are great.

productive and fun

Great company. Productive atmosphere and fun and productive. I wonder if it is such a great place, I think it is just is growing so quickly it can be a bit disorienting.

Come for the job, stay for the money

A tech company that resists growing up. Why should they? So far Splunk's making money hand over fist. Commitment to employees and breakthrough thinking is deeply lacking. Very little is thought through by executives or managers. Sales and marketing are paramount; engineers hold much product development power. Diversity is strongly promoted but not fully supported beyond display to the world. Quite a disappointment. Many hang on for the big paychecks and bonuses.

productive and start up culture

I enjoyed working at Splunk and had the opportunity to expand my skill set and grow in my career. This company had a laid back culture that was very fun while still being productive.

Ageist and insecure. Unprofessional and inexperienced management.

Management is young, inexperienced, and untrained. Massive growth in a short time frame led to many technical employees promoted without the correct skills to manage. Company is therefore led by a contracted third party company (also young and clueless) that is only interested in keeping their contract. Management is not interested in solutions. Lack of experience results in extreme insecurity among management. They hired and fired four veteran contractors (for a long-term contract) within a month. This is not a place anyone, particularly a seasoned contractor, should be.


Video games, ping pong table. Never saw them used once. Free snacks.


Video games and ping pong table are window dressing to convince employees of a relaxed environment, but it is a pretense. It is not collaborative or welcoming.
